Official Letters to the Honorable American Congress 2 Volume Set Official Letters to the Honorable American Congress Synopsis

Appointed Major General by the Continental Congress in 1775, George Washington, the future President of the United States of America, was one of the most significant and influential witnesses to the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783). Published in England in 1795, twelve years after the end of the conflict, this two-volume collection of the letters he wrote to Congress during the war provides unique insights into both the military strategies employed and the evolving values that underpinned them. Opening in June 1775, Volume 1 leads readers through the first eighteen months of the conflict. Organized chronologically, the substantial body of material reproduced here reveals the thoughts of a man engaged in warfare, politics and the forging of an independent nation. As such, it promises to enlighten the 'reasoning philosophic reader, which wishes to explore the secret springs of action'.
